Laura gifted to me a vintage 1999 book authored by Conan O’Brien and the writers of Late Night, “In the Year 2000…”
Of the book’s 369 predictions, I found two (0.54%) which have come true:
–The book’s very first entry, which foretold, “Man will sometimes write ‘1999’ on his checks.”
–And this one, recently fulfilled: “The term ‘politically correct’ will no longer be considered politically correct.”
Over the past sixteen years, this book itself has depreciated more than 90%, from its original suggested retail price of $10.95 to less than a dollar at the place where Laura found it. And yet, it shall be a priceless keepsake.
